    Hi Cris,
    Just to let you know that the night before last had much, much better seeing.
    The views of Jupiter were absolutely fantastic. Yes, outstanding. I was very impressed.
    So please pass on my words to Pal and Catalin.
    I used ZAO1 10, TMB 10, TMB 14, ZAO1 16, each with Baader Barlow. It gave me a sense of performance, that will get even better with monoculars such as ZAO 6, 4 or TMB 4,5,7.
    Out of interest, the ZAO and TMB were very, very similar. The only difference I could discern was when viewing the Trapezium in the Orion Nebula. The 5th and 6th stars were not as easily discernible with the TMB. However, all eyepieces produced great results.
